I am scared I may get sacked.
My Dad passed away suddenly from cancer at the end of May.
I was on holiday when this happened. So extended my holiday to make use of the company 2 week bearevement policy. I then returned to work on a phased return (over a 4 week period) as per advise of my doctor. After this period work simply piled on the pressure and said there was an expectation on me to deliver and help cover another persons workload as they were off. I hadn’t been feeling able to concentrate at work over the 4 week phases return and decided to see my doctor again. We discussed a continued phased return as well as taking some time off to grieve properly. We decided it would be best to take another 4 weeks off.
My work have referred me to occupational health.
in the back of my mind I am worried they could try and get rid of me.
Looking online at appears as if they would be within their rights.
Thoughts/experiences of others pls?
